What do you get when you mix a bunch of rowdy plebes, lard and a phallic monument? A hot, sweaty homoerotic mess.
That was the situation this week as plebes at the U.S. Naval Academy capped the end of their first grueling year by trying to be the first to grab the cap at the top of the 21-foot Herndon Monument. It’s an annual tradition that results in shirtless hotties climbing all over one another. Nice.
One of the plebes said it best in the news clip above: “It’s a hot, sweaty, nasty mess.”
